Rent Canon XF305Marc Ehrenbold
A powerful technique of capturing what human eye is unable to perceive, slow motion filming is widely employed both by professional filmmakers and amateurs. The latter may be surprised to know that the name of this filming method is somehow deceitful. It is rather “high speed” shooting which involves recording the video at an increased number of frames per second to consequently play it back at a lower rate.
Unless you are satisfied with motion blur and artificially-looking footage, using specialized equipment is a must. Slow Motion Cameras have one unique and revolutionary feature – the ability to record at rates up to a whopping 960 fps. It does make economic sense to hire a slow motion camera along with relevant accessories, especially if the need for it is temporary. With Aimimage, you can hire camera equipment in London right now.
A good example is the Sony PXW-FS7 high definition camcorder which offers continuous recording in Full HD image quality with a frame rate of up to 180 fps. This makes it possible to attain up to 7.5x Super Slow Motion when played back at 23.98 fps. Even more, support for unlimited shooting at Super Slow Motion means no more mistimed shots leading to extra takes. It also provides you with a possibility to pick out footage at exactly the point that you want.
Numerous advantages of the Sony PXW-FS7 include the superlarge size of sensor which makes the camera perfectly compatible with cine-style film lenses. This offers a good solution to the challenge one usually faces while dealing with either broadcast-style or “full-frame” sensors. Beside that, it contributes to lower image noise, higher sensitivity in darkness, and a surpassing dynamic range.
Another option for shooting a breath-taking slow motion video is ARRI AMIRA with its dynamic range exceeding 14 stops and a 200 fps speed up mode. It is equipped with a 35 mm sensor identical to the one ARRI ALEXA has, which has already gained wide recognition.
The camera proves to be very easy for one-man operation, and its documentary-style design ensures perfect shoulder balance. You can easily rent ARRI AMIRA PREMIUM – just get in touch with us.
